November 2015
Contest: Human Connections
Deadline: December 3rd -extended!

It's fall in the northern hemisphere, which brings with it fall harvests and festivals of gratitude and happiness. In the southern hemisphere, spring has sprung, and spring is often associated with love. Whether people are settling in for the winter or emerging from winter's gloom, November is the perfect time to celebrate all the wonderful human connections we make throughout the year. This month, we'd like you to make a video focusing on friendships and happy moments in a single fandom. Remember, we're looking for videos about friendship, not romantic/shippy vids. However, you can include romantic pairings in your vid as long as you focus on the friendship side of their relationship.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We're excited to see your videos!


The Rules

Specific Contest Rules
• Make a video about friendships in a single fandom
• No multi-fandom vids
• Canon only. No AUs or OCs.
• Running time should be under five minutes. We suggest three to five minutes.
• The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.
• When entering your video on the Submit page, you MUST enter "November 2015 contest submission" exactly in your vid's description.

General Contest Rules:
• Contest submissions should be entered through the Submit page.
• All regular submissions Rules apply.
• Only one entry per vidder.
• Videos already submitted and RELEVANT can be submitted again, but we would rather see something fresh. (Please contact a CM if you wish to enter a previously-submitted video)
• Please do not use Rapidshare, Yousendit, Mediafire, or Sendspace as your only hosting place as the links tend to expire quickly.
• If you're using Youtube as your primary link, please also provide us with an alternative link. Far too often, YT is either disabled or muted by the time the contest is ready to be judged. Mediafire and zshare are just a couple of the sites out there that can be used as reliable backup links. We do realise that there have been a lot of issues with file-sharing websites recently but if you can find anywhere that you're comfortable uploading to and that is easily accessible, that would be great!
• Keep in mind that however you choose to host your video, it must be available to be watched at least until after the deadline has passed. If we can not access your video at the time of judgment it will not be considered.
• Have fun!

Can I do a vid about the various friendships of one character? For example, could I focus on the the friendships of Hurley such as Hurley and Sawyer, Hurley and Charlie, and Hurley and Claire, etc ?

Would something like that be alright for the contest?

I think that sounds like a really cool idea, Macaila. Really looking forward to that.

Thanks Brooke. I'm not sure if I will actually vid Hurley's friendships. There is another character I'd really like to use for this contest if I have sufficient material. Either way, I think the Hurley version would be fun to do at some point. I am way behind on posting my wishlist, so once that vid is done I'll get to work on this one.

Can I have a small extension? I am almost done but I don't know if I will be able to finish it tonight or tomorrow.
